A lot of the people currently working at PSA weren't voting on their contact because in 2013 they weren't working at PSA at all. They weren't sitting in the comfort of a roomy cockpit or hotel room, they were busy flying aircraft that got shot at. Many of those same people still fly those aircraft today. In fact, I know several PSA guys deployed right now. Some of those people you decry have caught more bodies than most of you have slept with, which judging by some of these ridiculous responses, probably isn't that many to begin with. Large portions of the pilot community have a lot more going on in their lives than to spend countless hours digging through years of an airlines history and contract voting. A lot of people have sacrificed more and experienced more personal loss in their young lives than you will ever experience in the whole of yours. So please, kindly get over yourself. Put your efforts into voting down this TA, not villainizing an entire pilot group that had little to do with a vote you didn't like at an airline you don't work for.

They are actually a pretty large reason AA WOís are in their current situation pay wise.

All I hear is the sound of a whiner. Your blind defense of your company is online with the mentality of PSA. And nowhere did I disparage those who serve in the military, so you can kindly shove that statement right up your tailpipe. I spent plenty of time over in Iraq and Afghanistan supporting OIF and OEF and donít need you to lecture me.

I will say that Iím happy that you felt compelled to creat an account just to respond to me. It makes me happy to know that I tweaked you that much. So go back to drinking the Dayton water, maybe throw on a wife beater along with some jorts, and go back to congratulating one another each time you steal another airplane from MQ due to your predecessors and lifers selling out. And if you donít want to do that, you can always continue eating Cheetos while lounging in your beanbag chair.

PSA has military pilots and thus all criticism of the airline must cease at once

Haha nope! The military card saves no one from making uninformed bad choices.

Could you post a link to what this is all about? I've now heard about it, and tried to google it, but still don't know what I'm looking for, and can't find it.

For the basics...stems from a crappy deal PSA took in 2013. Concessions and awful language and then "rewarded" for voting it in with those shiny 900s we are forced to look at everywhere now. It essentially crippled efforts at Eagle and others to get gains/aicraft in a time of increasing capacity with an increasing scarcity of pilots. Not the first time PSA has undermined another group...look up any PSA thread around late 2013 to fill in the gaps. Also research the Stop the Whipsaw movement.
